COVER 

BUILT TO LAST 
In the age of planned obsolescence one of 



the fascinations of the past is that craftsmen 
built for the centuries not the months. This 
covered bridge in Jackson, New Hampshire, 
is in daily use and seemingly as sound as a 
dollar of a hundred years ago. The wood is 
without paint protected by the overhang of 
the tin roof. The span is hung on a huge 
spring of a truss. This curved spring is con- 
structed of 3" x 8" timbers bolted 12 thick 
to give the resilient strength to the structure. 
As the cars pass over, the floor boards jump, 
the bridge sighs and flexes. The feeling is 
of a living being which of course is what it 
is. This wood still lives and serves a con- 
tinuing new generation of vehicles. The photo 
below shows the spring truss and the beautiful 
geometry of timber which hangs on its length. 
Whenever you consider the Yankee carpenter, 
this has to be one of his finer moments of 
creation. D.C.J.

FIRE ENGINEERS DISAPPROVE SUB STATION 

The Board of Fire Engineers met with 
Selectmen to further discuss the possible 
use of a surplus fire truck in the Brandt 
Beach area. The Fire Engineers were 
firm in recommending that, if Selectmen 
decide to put the pumper in the Brandt 
Beach location, it should be done

with the understanding that it is the com- 
plete responsibility of the Brandt Beach 
residents . They said that the town of 
Mattapoisett should retain no responsi- 
bility for it. In the opinion of the Board 
of Fire Engineers, Brandt Beach is no 
place to establish a sub- station. They 
feel that, if a sub- station should be es- 
tablished, it should be in a static lo- 
cation to serve a radius of the community 
rather than a small area. As a result of 
this meeting, the Selectmen requested that 
the Board of Fire Engineers meet with the 
Brandt Island group for the purpose of fully 
discussing the proposition and conveying 
their view to the Brandt Beach group. 
WHARF PROBLEMS DISCUSSED 

Wharf Commissioner George Henshaw met 
with the Board of Selectmen to discuss his 
procedures for trash and litter control on 
the wharf as well as controls over boating 
and mooring fees.

able to the townspeople.

concern had been noted and the Selectmen's 
opposition would receive consideration. 

A June 24th letter was received by Mr. 
George Hall, executive secretary to the 
Selectmen, from William Butler, chief of 
water quality program, also noting the Se- 
lectmen's opposition to the scheme. Both 
men indicated that the plan was one of many 
under consideration and that no program 
would be started without public hearings and 
other steps to assess public reaction 
SCHOOL TAX COMPARISON 

An office of municipal planning and manage- 
ment study of local cost of education has been 
received by Selectmen. It is interesting to 
note that New Bedford in 1973 spent 36% of its 
local tax receipts on education. In this same 
period, Mattapoisett spent 59% of local taxes 
on schools. This is in a period when the city 
is itching to relocate its no income or low in- 
come people in the suburbs. 
HUGGARD HONORED 

The Board of Selectmen awarded a post-humous 
certificate of appreciation to Mr. Wil- 
liam Huggard which was presented to Mrs.

OPPOSE LATE CLOSING 

The Board of Selectmen has advised Celso 
Branco, proprietor of King of the Road, that 
his request for an extension of closing time 
on Sunday from 1 A.M. to 2 A.M. has been 
denied . The Selectmen felt that it would not 
be in the best interest of the town to approve 
the extension. 
REVIEW POLICE VACANCY 

Chief of Police Alfred Faria met with Se-

The weathervane, stolen from the bandstand

FLAGS DISHONORED 

A number of small United States flags of 
the type that are placed on graves were 
discovered discarded at the Mattapoisett 
dump. This is a profound disrespect to the 
flag and to the country for which it stands . 
According to the rules regarding the care 
and respect for the United States Flag based 
upon Public Law 829, "When the United 
States Flag is in such condition that it is 
no longer a fitting emblem for display, it 
should be destroyed in a dignified way, 
preferably by burning, privately. " 

Anyone in doubt about the proper display 
and treatment of the nation 1 s flag can inquire 
of organizations such as "the Legion or pub- 
lic information centers such as the Library.

Library Board Meeting 

(ANOTHER VENTURE IN FUTILITY) 

On July 2nd there was posted on the 
Town Hall bulletin board a notice of 
Library Board of Trustees meeting scheduled 
for 8:00 P.M. July 3, 1974, to be held in 
the town library. 

Interested townspeople attended that 
meeting. And some notes were taken. 

Minutes of the previous meeting were 
not read for the public attending. 

The librarian's report to the Trustees was 
accepted by the chairman, but not read to 
the public. Dr. Rosenfield requested the 
librarian to present a summary for the bene- 
fit of the public. Chairman Waterhouse 
refused this request. 

It was announced that State Aid had been 
accepted in the amount of $1,687.50. 

The gas meter will be re-located to an ex- 
terior wall at an estimated cost of $30.00. 
An application request for this change will 
be filled out. 

The chairman asked the librarian about 
the re-organization of the card catalogue 
and Mrs. LaPlante pointed out the exper-

use required for this task. The chairman 
urged Mrs. LaPlante to expeditiously pro- 
ceed with this assignment. The chairman 
asked Mrs. LaPlante if she had registered 
for any classes. The librarian responded 
that she had no plans for taking classes at 
this time. 

Mr. Humphrey was asked by Dr. Rosenfield 
on behalf of the public if all of the projected 
plans could be effected within the $37,000 
budget voted at the annual town meeting. 
The reply was, "that with the current in- 
flationary spiral it would perhaps exceed 
the $37,000." 

Mrs. Bennett asked the chairman if the 
Trustees ended fiscal 1974 without a de- 
ficit budget. Mr. Waterhouse did not re- 
ply directly to this question but talked 
instead of the projected fiscal 1975. After

persistent questioning he stated that the 
salary budgets for 1974 were over-run be- 
cause of "vacation" severance pay gener- 
ously given to the resigned staff. (Paren- 
thetically, Mrs. Putman refused and re- 
turned her check.) 

Mr. Oliver LaFrance, President of the 
Friends of the Library, asked the chairman 
if the Friends could undertake a project of 
having the Barstow painting restored. Mr. 
Waterhouse responded, "No, we have plans 
of our own. We do not consider you friends 
of the Trustees nor of the library. " Mr. 
LaFrance said, "Not friends of the Trustees; 
friends of the library. Sometimes the hand 
of friendship must be extended." Mr. Water- 
house concluded, "We don't want your help. 
We don't need you! " 

The chairman announced that the Board was 
going into executive session to discuss the 
librarian's salary and hours. 

A request from the floor was made pertain- 
ing to the new library hours (Monday, Wed- 
nesday & Friday from 2 to 8 P.M.; Saturday 
from 1 to 5 P.M.). The librarian in response 
stated, "These are our summer hours, but 
I am most willing to provide any hourly ar- 
rangement suitable to the townspeople."

However, the chairman stated that "the new 
hours are for a six-month trial" . 

Mr. Robert Humphrey (LaBonte and Humphrey, 
Architects) arrived at 9:00 P.M. with plans 
for the projected access ramp (state spon- 
sored aid to the handicapped). The blue- 
prints were presented to the Trustees, one 
of whom suggested that they be hung on the

chairman ruled that the blueprints would

CHAIRMAN WATERHOUSE* S COMMENTS 

The above account of the July 3rd Li- 
brary Board of Trustees' meeting is dis- 
puted by Mr. Richard Waterhouse, chair- 
man. Mr. Waterhouse states that, at 
this meeting, the blueprints were dis- 
played in full view of everyone, on a 
table . He stated further that the report 
of the librarian is not withheld from the 
public but, to the contrary, is published 
weekly in the Presto. I inquired of Mr. 
Waterhouse, whether this simple listing 
of books and events constitutes the corn-

plete report of the librarian. He replied 
that the Presto is furnished a weekly re- 
port from the librarian. (The Presto is 
furnished a list of new books and events 
which we publish in full. If this list is 
the full report of the librarian, I am as- 
tounded-a reaction given to the chairman 
of the library board.) I also inquired of 
Mr. Waterhouse if he would say who the 
Library Trustees represent. He replied 
the town of Mattapoisett . I questioned, 
"Does that mean the people of Mattapoi- 
sett?" He replied, "the town of Matta- 
poisett. " 

In response to my request for information 
on the library plans Mr. Waterhouse re- 
ferred me to the architect Mr. Robert Humph- 
rey. Mr. Humphrey was kind enough to go 
to his Acushnet office to make blueprints 
after getting Mr. Waterhouse' s authori- 
zation. The blueprints will be displayed 
in the Presto office for the information 
of any citizen of Mattapoisett who may ex- 
amine them during Presto office hours. Mr. 
Humphrey explained that the primary pur-

Replies re Library 

The Mattapoisett Board of Selectmen has 
responded to my request of June 19th for 
the removal of the Mattapoisett Public 
Library from the Federal Revenue Sharing 
list. This request was made with the 
knowledge that the list was non-binding. 
It was made in the hope that it would ac- 
complish two things. I sought to focus 
the attention of the Selectmen on a town 
meeting vote which had been negated. The 
Selectmen responded by calling a meeting,

Everybody's offering NOW accounts, including 
Plymouth-Home National Bank. What's the dif- 
ference? None really. NOW accounts by them- 
selves don't vary much from bank to bank. 



Here at Plymouth-Home we've introduced NOW 
accounts, but we've added a few extras ... we 
put together a package of banking services and call 
it NOW • PAK. By itself, a NOW account is useful 
mainly as a checking account for those who write 
relatively few checks, live on a limited income, or 
make frequent savings withdrawals. NOW • PAK 
is a whole new direction in NOW account services, 
designed to make your banking easier, less con- 
fusing and more convenient to you. It includes: 

• 5% DAILY INTEREST • MONTHLY STATEMENTS • 
PLUS 

• TELLER 24 FOR ROUND-THE-CLOCK BANKING • 
• MAXICHECK CASH RESERVE* 
• AUTOMATIC CASH TRANSFERS • 

This total banking package is available to you only 
at Plymouth-Home for only 10<t a check. We've put 
together a completely unique package. With 
NOW • PAK you can solve your banking puzzle.

reviewing the town meeting tape which 
resulted in compliance with the vote of the 
citizens. The second result I hope for is 
to call the attention of the Library Board of 
Trustees to the fact that they represent and 
act for Mattapoisett people and are not free 
agents . There is a difference of view be- 
tween elected and elector as to the future 
of the library. The townspeople are ignored 
and excluded and have no redress except the 
considerable moral leverage of the Select- 
men' s office. The Selectmen indicated the 
June 19th request will be given due consider- 
ation. I sincerely thank them for their sup- 
port and prompt action to date.

HOURLY RATE FOR LIBRARIAN 

It is our feeling the Librarian position is 
properly classified in Grade 7 Administrative 
which calls for a minimum rate of $3.80 per 
hour. 

In view of the budget approved by the Town 
and the basis for this budget the rate for 
Librarian will be $2.54 per hour effective 
July 1, 1974. It is our understanding that 
this is the rate the Town wishes to pay the 
Librarian for a 22 hour work week. The rates

A GREAT TRIBUTE 

There is nothing more that I can say except 
that as I listen, see, hear and feel with 
an understanding ear, I would say that the 
"greatest tribute" that day was by one Bill

hot day under a blazing sun and with every 
excuse to remain away, Bill Hubbard, our

I would say this is a true act of love.

Mattapoisett Yacht Club 

JULY FOURTH RACES AT THE 
MATTAPOISETT YACHT CLUB 

With a full day of planned special events, 
the Mattapoisett Yacht Club opened its 
1974 racing season Saturday, July 6th. 
Beetle Cats, 42 0' s and a cruising class 
participated, the latter vying for the 
coveted J. Lewis Stackpole Trophy. 

The slate of winners included Laurie 
Jenney, Dave Jenney, Jim Holt and Steve 
Ruel*. 

The skies were clear, seas smooth and 
the temperature pleasantly warm, but the 
light fickle wind posed somewhat of a 
problem, as it shifted from NW to SW, 
at time dropping well below 10 miles dur- 
ing the morning hours . 

At 10:30, the fleet of five Handicap Yachts 
began their 12.3 mile course to Flashing 
White Bell. 7, to Bow Bells Black Can 11 off 
Aucoot Cove, to Angelica Point Red Nun 2 
and finish at Ned's Point. On corrected 
time, Steve Ruel* at the helm of Tiara took 
top honors, besting both Susan McGowan's 
Gryphon and Chester Young's Spindrift. 

The Ladies' Race at 10:40 started out quite 
briskly, but before long the wind slowed down 
so perceptibly that the course had to be

shortened to bring the sailors in on schedule. 
Laurie Jenney in Ariel was the victor, fol- 
lowed by Valerie Putman' s Paddington and 
Susan Whalen' s Frolic. 

In the afternoon, however, the breeze be- 
gan to pick up, and the skippers in the 420 
Open and the Beetle Cat Open made the most 
of it. 

The division of 420' s, the first to set sail 
(1:30) saw Jim Holt's #12127 take the initiative 
and continue on to win. Harvey Pentleton' s 
#15320 and Mark Roberts' #12414 finishing 
in that order. 

The Beetle Cat Open, next at 1:35, gave 
promise of being quite competitive, but as 
Jimmy Broadwater' s Agamemnon began to fall 
back, Dave Jenney in Ariel gained the lead. 
Bill Downey's Ask Mom, in third, was not 
far behind .

FALLEN ANGELS AT MATTAPOISETT 
CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH 

If you think that this article is going 
to be a theological discussion you may 
as well stop reading, but if you realize 
that it is about Noel Coward's hilarious 
comedy being presented to benefit the re- 
storation fund on July 26, 27 and August 
2, 3, you'll probably be interested. 

When you come to the play, you'll see 
six actors on the stage brilliantly per- 
forming the characters that Mr. Coward 
has interwoven in this domestic joviality, 
but you'll hear about them in next week's 
article. This week, however, I want to 
tell you about some of the other "charac- 
ters" that are helping to get the show on 
the boards. 

Richard Helfand, the director, who has 
appeared in Old Rochester and Marion Art 
Center productions in the past, is now a 
student at Framingham State College where 
he has been involved in every production 
either on the stage, behind the stage, or as 
the director. He strives to entertain the 
audience. "Entertainment is what theatre 
is all about. That's why I like comedy. I 
always have directed comedies and I hope 
I always will. I want people to come to the

There are countless other faceless people

Marine Paintings 



MARION ART CENTER EXHIBIT 

On Friday, July 12th, from 6 to 7:30 
P.M. , members and guests of the Marion 
Art Association will be invited to an 
opening of the Albert Big elow- Andrew 
Hepburn Exhibit of marine paintings which 
will be hung in the Cecil Clark Davis 
Gallery from July 12 to August 2. Both 
artists are residents of Marion and have 
had experience at sea . 

Albert Bigelow's oil paintings are con- 
cerned with the "working sail" of the New 
England coast from 1895 to 1925. These 
include Cape Cod Catboats, Friendship 
Sloops, Kingston Lobsterboats , 3-masted 
and Coasting Schooners as well as the 
"Mary Celeste" and the yacht "America". 
Eight of Albert Bigelow's paintings are in 
the permanent collection of the Mystic 
Seaport. His style and workmanship re- 
flects his interest in such masters of the 
medium as Titian, Rembrandt, Hiroshige, 
Van Goyen and Goya. 

Andrew Hepburn's watercolor paintings are 
influenced by his background of vacations 
spent in sailing coasters, banks fishermen, 
ocean-going sailing vessels and steamships 
During World War II he served in destroyers 
and destroyer escort duty in the Atlantic, 
Caribbean and Mediterranean.

VICTIM OF HEAT TREATED 

One of the participants in the July 4th 
Road Race collapsed with heat prostration 
in the blistering atmosphere of the day. 
Chris Cooper of 32 Church Street fainted 
in front of the home of Mrs . Barbara 
Whiterell which was a fortunate location 
because Mrs. Whiterell, a nurse, was 
able to give the prompt first aid that the 
situation demanded. She was able to ar- 
rest Miss Cooper's rapidly rising tempera- 
ture until police could arrive with oxygen 
equipment and transport Miss Cooper to 
Tobey Hospital for treatment. 

HOLIDAY MARRED BY DEATH 

Jeffrey Souza, 19, of 99 B Rounse-

vehicle driven by Rebecca E. Heath of 
27 North Street, Mattapoisett, at 12:30 
A.M. on Friday morning. The Souza boy 
was killed in the accident. He was ap- 
parently hitchhiking near the entrance to 
the Industrial Park just south of the 195 
eastbound entrance. The Heath girl was 
reported as driving some friends home to 
Rochester when the accident happened.

to $90.00. Also, the four Intensive Care 
beds in the Barth Unit will be increased 
from $117.00 to $175.00. 

These increases reflect the increased cost 
of supplies sold to the hospital, i.e. , Fuel, 
food, Medical material, etc. Also, the 
need to increase the personnel pay scales 
and benefits also effective July 1, 1974, to 
meet the current economic situation is cited 
as a reason for these price adjustments.

contributions are sought to help the trust 
build up reserves for future land acquisition. 

"The trust seeks to acquire land through 
gift, purchase or conservation easement as 
a means of preserving the attractive natural 
heritage of our growing community for pre- 
sent and future generations," said David 
W. Hewitt, president. 

"As a private organization outside the 
realm of politics, the trust can assume 
leadership in wise land management and 
flexibility in dealing with the specific de- 
sires of donors of land," he added. 

"Land owners who love and care about 
their land and have a sense of stewardship 
about its future may consider the trust as 
38 PRESTO PRESS July 10, 1974 



a vehicle for land preservation. Property 
owners who give land or grant conservation 
easements on their land to the trust are the 
beneficiaries of reductions in their real 
estate and income taxes." 

Membership in the organization is open 
to anyone. 

The telephone directory was used as a 
basis for compiling the list of persons to 
which membership invitations are being sent. 
Those of you who may be Interested In be- 
coming a part of the trust and who do not 
receive an invitation should contact Mr. 
Hewitt or direct correspondence to Matta- 
poisett Land Trust, Inc., Box 31, Matta- 
poisett . 



In addition to Mr. Hewitt, the Board of 
Directors also includes Atty. Donald J. 
Fleming, vice president; George B. Mock, 
treasurer; Bradford A. Hathaway, clerk; 
Mrs. Isabella Watts, Dr. Larry Seidl, 
Mrs. Lorraine Seidl, Mrs. Norma Hewitt,
